Another housekeeping reminder: We'll be cutting off comments here in a few minutes, probably no later than 9:45pm PT (6 minutes from now), once our reporters are set up at the Apple event. Otherwise all the news you want will be too hard to find in the river of comments.
Folks, we're shutting down comments now. But we'll be back after Apple's presentation, so don't go away.
As David said, we're taking a break from comments during the event so we can all see what our CNET team in San Jose is reporting. Otherwise it would be too hard to follow what they're saying.
But please stick around. We'll turn on comments again after we have the news.
Our CNET colleagues Josh Lowensohn, Scott Stein, and Rich Brown will be bringing you the news live from the California Theatre in downtown San Jose, Calif.
Morning y'all. We just got in and sat down.
Hello everyone. Made it through the scrum and we're inside.
Howdy, guys. What can you tell us about the venue, the set dressing, the crowd, etc.?
Welcome, Josh, Rich, and Scott! And James, who is our CNET photographer today. The live video commentary is from our editors Molly Wood, Brian Tong, and Donald Bell.
Big crowd here today. Nothing on stage but two bottles of water and a remote control.
Josh: Any glimpses of VIPs? Apple executives? How many people are in the theater?
Our team in the theater is still getting settled, including getting their Wi-Fi connections set up.
Though James is shooting away.
Fun fact: Apple's last time here was to debut the video iPod.
FYI Apple's event is scheduled to begin in about seven minutes (though sometimes there's a brief delay).
And now I'm going to turn it over to our live CNET team from the San Jose theater. Talk to you again once the event is over!
Just got the "please switch off your phones" message. Event's a few minutes away.
Now playing "It's time" by the band Imagine Dragons. Indeed.
Finally! Logged in. Wow that has hard. Hopefully I'm not on delay.
Hi everyone. So, this theater was a lot harder to file people into.
